The building of the primary school Komenského 1 in Trebišov in Eastern Slovakia has become an abandoned architecture in the recent years (the school building was sanitized in 2010). Last two years I have been systematically working with this place as a part of my urban explorations. I myself attended the school in the years 1988 – 1996 therefore I do not detach my own personal experiences connected with this place. They are intertwined with a documentation of a current status quo.
